Christmas Morning - This morning you woke up at 6:45 thinking today was going to be like any other morning. Today Eli is special. Today we celebrate the birth of our Saviour, Jesus Christ. However, you are 2 years old - and a need for a saviour is a hard, impossible concept for you. Some day, my son.
During Christmas we also share presents to each other. Like any typical 2 year old American there was no lack of gifts under the tree. The first gift you opened may as well have been your last - once you saw the "power ranger" your Christmas dreams had been achieved! But wait - there was another power ranger to come (from big brother John). The clothes, kitchen toys, dvd - it could all go back. You got your power ranger. It's not about the amount of money you spend, the number of gifts you get - it's getting that special gift that makes all the difference. That's what the gift of Jesus is all about - that one special gift.
I love you Eli - Merry Christmas!
